The texture of this is amazingly rich and perfect. Being vegetarian I used veg stock and added a bit of crushed red pepper with the nutmeg (we like everything spicy!). I left out the spinach as we had none, but I can't wait to make this again with other veggies. Oh, and I added a clove of garlic with the onions and baked this in my corningware casserole (after starting it in a saucepan). Thanks for a great recipe that is going into my permanent files!
Delicious!! I used a 12" iron skillet and halved the recipe. I also used 3 minced cloves of garlic as others suggested. I left out the salt because my chicken stock was pretty strong and salty already. Very easy to make, turned out exceptional and am eating the leftovers right now.
This turned out great! I made mine using vegetable stock. The only difference for me was in step 10. All the liquid was absorbed and the rice was cooked through after about 7 minutes, which was fine because the asparagus was nice and bright green, and still had a slight crunch to it! Just the way I like it.
I made it a *bit* lighter by skipping the sautÃ©ing in oil. I just started with the stock and added the rice and onion to that. Aside from that I followed the directions and got a delightful risotto. This method of making the classic rice dish in the oven work's perfectly. There's no need for all that stirring. I love this way of making it. Made for ZWT4.
I've never eaten risotto before and have always been intimidated at the thought of making it.Plus, most recipes are pretty fattening. This was a breeze to make. I added some chopped mushroom while the onions cooked and used veggie broth. I have to admit, I kind of wish I would have added more cheese, but it was yummy as is. I agree with other reviewers that you could mix up the veggies with great success. Thanks for posting the recipe.
This so soooooo delicious! Added garlic also! Thanks for sharing.
this was very easy and very delicious, too. i loved the risotto, but my asparagus was way too well cooked. next time i make it, i will add the asparagus about 5 minutes before the recipe is done and also add 1/4 more grated cheese. thanks chia.
Chia, this recipe was delicious! Although I did make just a few changes to use ingredients I had on hand. I replaced the spinach with collard greens and added 2 minced cloves of garlic to the onion sautee to add to the flavor of the collards. I also replaced the chicken broth with vegetable broth. The flavor was terrific!! We are looking forward to having this recipe again!
This was wonderful! Followed directions but also added some red pepper flakes. Perfect and thank you for posting.
Wonderful flavor! This was so easy to make - next time I'll add mushrooms.
